Parental Control: YouTube video filtering


Recommended Posts

I've been using Eset Parental Control for a while. It's a great solution, but lacks YouTube video filtering / monitoring. It would be a "must have" feature for a parental control app. I used Qustodio earlier and it has this feature and works quite well. Does Eset plan to develop this feature?

Um, SZT is not asking about blocking YouTube altogether, but rather blocking specific, objectionable content. I would like to be able to do this too. Not everything on YouTube is garbage, but there are filthy videos and language in many.

YouTube has a Restricted Mode that controls this. The catch is it is browser specific:

I'll look into that, thanks!

 

This should be something that ESET can implement device-wide, though.

 

Thank you for the quick response.

I for one don't know about any service providing youtube video categorization. While it's easier to make algorithms to categorize websites with the help of AI and humans, I can't imagine how it could be done with videos that are streamed by youtube.
